By Ed Waggener

Adopting a combination of cost savings measures and revenue enhancement approaches, the Adair County Hospital Board of Trustees took significant steps last night to stanch the cash bleeding and put the hospital on a break even or better footing.

The steps are not without some pain. A reduction in force will cost more than 10 and fewer than 20 jobs, according to Chairman Craig Pyles, who shepherded the stern measures through with a 5-0 vote at the trustees December 27, 2012 meeting. He said that for the moment, the hospital remains in survival mode. "We've got to do what we have to do, or no one will have jobs," but added a positive note, "We're going to get through this."
